Nice museum, lots of interactive stuff to see and do, lots of artifacts left there by musicians and even the option to record your own blues song. Good place for blues lovers and also a good place to learn a lot more about it.

Small building. Few pamphlets you can get free. Museum cost $10 so we didn’t go in. Friendly staff. Only takes a few minutes out of your time to stop.
